House plants are an integral part of my decorating style and philosophy.
African violets (saintpaulia sp) are among my favorites.
Luminescent blooms tower over velvety green, heart-shaped leaves. They come in a multitude of colors, but of course, my preference is for white blooms.
My African violets have never looked this good.
The difference is in the pot. I bought this pot specifically designed for African violets last fall. These planters are nothing new, but I had been skeptical of this design and not thought it worth the extra money.
Boy I was wrong!
This planter has a porous inner pot and a glazed outer pot. All you do is simply keep a supply of water in the outer pot and the inner one draws in as much water as it needs.
It could not be any more simple.
A mulch of decorative rock keeps the moisture in.
Flowering indoor plants satisfy my gardening needs during the cold weather months.
Until next time...
